Centre Street Food Pantry
Our mission is to provide families within our community with consistent
access to nutritious food in a dignified and sensitive environment.
It Takes a Village
We can't do this alone. We believe that people and organizations working together make Centre Street stronger. That's why we partner with the greatest folks around. They help us feed more families.
DIGNITY AND KINDNESS
Centre Street is a respectful community where each person is treated with dignity and kindness. Our volunteers are trained to introduce themselves to shopping families and to treat shoppers as they would like to be treated. We welcome families from Newton and all neighboring towns: Brookline, Brighton, Needham, Waltham, Watertown, Wellesley, West Roxbury
We work hard at Centre Street to ensure our shoppers have lots of healthy choices. An average of 2500 pounds of produce are distributed to our families each week. And we share great recipes with our shoppers too - you know, if you've never cooked with kale, a fun recipe is key.
Monica, Centre Street Shopper
"I just finished chemo for cancer. Some weeks I can carry my own groceries and some weeks I can’t. Everyone helps me out. Everyone here is super-crazy nice. I’m grateful to be a poor person in Newton. I grew up in Brookline so I didn’t realize what services were available when you run into a financial or health crises. I’m lucky to be here.” Monica's favorite Centre Street item to pick up is our fresh produce. “I love the perfectly ripe tomatoes — the ones you have today.”
